Amar’e Stoudemire And Carmelo Anthony Can Tell You How To Get To Sesame Street

Little known fact: Grover is a notorious ball hog. And kind of a chucker as well. Not that I can blame him. The puppet’s got mad ball skills. The above photo, uploaded to the interwebs yesterday by New York Knicks big man Amar’e Stoudemire, shows he and teammate Carmelo Anthony hanging out with the aforementioned Grover as the two Knickerbockers filmed a scene for an upcoming episode of Sesame Street. Not pictured: Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni telling Oscar the Grouch that the cranky trashcan resident should get on Prozac.

While I am sure it was a tremendous honor for Stoudemire and Anthony to appear on the PBS show which is most certainly an integral institution relating to childhood, I am relieved that they treated the wonderful opportunity with the appropriate amount of respect and didn’t dress too provocatively like Katy Perry did for her appearance on the show. Actually, I am relieved on several levels for that one.
